The purpose of this blog is to help writers with their work, to be museful or perhaps instrumental in unclogging thoughts. To this end, I am providing a daily question, beginning sentence, beginning paragraph, prompt, and word-of-the-day to stimulate your “little gray cells.”
Question: What can you not help putting off?
Sentence: One by one, as the unbelievable details leaked out, Bev Claudio’s friends deserted her.
Paragraph: Four elderly men emerged from the locker room and perfunctorily waved to the early morning lifeguard, what’s-his-name. They had been swimming together since their various retirements decades ago. Sam Albert at 82 was the youngest but not the fastest. Eighty-five-year-old Ralph Brooks took that honor. He could not help himself; he was the most competitive of the group, even though their morning swims were for maintaining health. Donald Morton, 88, and John Simpson, 90, were happy just being able to get into and out of the pool without help.
Prompt: Describe your favorite hairstyle.
Word of the Day: halidom – n. [Archaic] 1 holiness 2 a holy place or thing (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)
